OLG Partners With UK Company as Part of Ongoing Evolution
There have been big developments in the Canadian casino industry this week, as we discover that the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has chosen to partner with a UK-based software and gaming platform company. This unprecedented move sees the company branching out beyond Canadian shores, and developing strong working relationships on a completely different continent.
The move came as the OLG plans a shake-up of its operations across Canada, and makes concerted attempts to modernise and evolve. Many will question the move, and why it could not have gone to a Canadian company, but there are clear benefits to taking this step for the OLG, and for Canadian gaming as a whole.
Indeed, Michael Brady, co-founder of Bede Gaming was quoted as saying, “I am delighted to be able to welcome OLG to Bede and am extremely proud of the team effort to bring this agreement to fruition.” This move signifies a landmark moment for Bede, and for international gambling relations. There are so many wonderful opportunities to explore things even further here.
In fact, before this, the OLG had considered adopting the same approach as Quebec, with its plan to block international gambling sites. As we know, Bill 74 was rejected by the Supreme Court for being unconstitutional. And it would have been a less productive approach for the OLG than this one anyway. So, there are a lot of benefits to this merger they have taken, and it has done wonders for international relations.
